I think Fiat has issued either a service notice or something related to oil consumption on older models. Check with your dealer. I have not done so but someone on the Facebook Fiat 500x owners group posted this news. Let us know if you run across this.
I got my notice in the mail today about the consumption issue. I called to schedule an appointment and was told it is basically an oil change. I am then to come back to the dealership as close to 1,500 miles later and they will check my oil level for signs of atypical consumption. I said that could take up to 3 months as we just do not drive the car much because of the pandemic. Has anyone else completed the test?
That sounds like a typical oil usage test. I would guess if the engine uses less than a quart, maybe 1.5 quarts, it will be considered normal.
Yes, that is the letter I received alerting me to the issue. I will probably take it in for the oil change in about two weeks as I am busy this weekend.
27. Oil Pressure Warning Light
This light indicates low engine oil pressure. The light should turn on momentarily when the engine is started. If the light turns on while driving, stop the vehicle and shut off the engine as soon as possible. A chime will sound for four minutes when this light turns on. Do not operate the vehicle until the cause is corrected. This light does not indicate how much oil is in the engine. The engine oil level must be checked under the hood.
This is an oil pressure sending unit pulling a "pressure" signal from one of the oil galleys.
No Oil = Low Oil Pressure
Busted Oil Pump = Low Oil Pressure
Oil is the life blood of your car... oil is so very important especially with this Multi-Air System.
